Bus Accident Claims

UK buses and coaches are often crowded and carry a large number of passengers, both seated and standing. The risk of numerous injuries – in the unfortunate event of a collision, emergency stop or a traffic accident – is quite high.

Bus accident injuries occur whenever passengers are thrown around inside the bus.
